30/11/2016 22:52:46 | GPUGRID | No tasks are available for Long runs (8-12 hours on fastest card) ..... no wu to send is a mistake !

Server status shows 102 wu are ready to send.
Thanks

Well I got a WU that won't fully download... Stuck at 96.04%
Additionally to that, It seems I got this WU after 5 others, all whom got computing errors.
At least that's what the site says...

Update: wu has been downloaded and a computational error popped up.
the wu in question is e1s12_0-GERARD_ENDOPEP_AMB_frag97_UP2_2-0-1-RND5094

I managed to download 2 WUs on my windows 10 machine, with no problem. They are running fine. On my xp computer, the download stalled a few time before being successful, though the WUs was bad and errored.

The Server Status page is slow to download and refresh.

The server status page says that there is only one task ready to send.

Apparently it is not of a suitable type for my computer, since it wasn't sent here.

What I am questioning is: on one hand, it says "no tasks available", on the other hand it says "Project communication failed".
This seems weired, right? How can the BOINC manager determine that no tasks are available if the communication to the server fails?

What I did now was that I closed and restarted BOINC on all PCs, and the notice "Project communication failed" does no longer show up.
I only get the message "no tasks available" which is consistent to what is shown on the project status page: no tasks there either.

So, to find out whether everything runs alright after the server change, it would be useful to get some new WUs :-)

The Server Status page says there is no new work, so only a few people will receive resends (of previously failed or aborted tasks) until new work is added to the queues.

But this page is very slow to update, something is wrong... Because after an update, applications are expected to work at least the same way; not slower.. Where is the project manager ? :D (or the Admin Sys)

Relax, your hardware is just right. They simply need to boot up the work generation services and feed the queue with fresh tasks.

Or we have gloriously done what had to be done, defeated cancer, cured Alzheimer and eliminated muscular dystrophy. Well, folks. It's been a pleasure but we could shut down our systems and go home, right?

Hmm. Having said this... more probably it is the first named reason ;-)

HTTPS access is now live.

Just got through to the website for the first time since yesterday morning, using a bookmarked HTTPS link in the browser.

Two machines picked up PABLO tasks either side of midnight last night, must have been soon after the new server first went live. Both tasks at 70%-80% - I should be able to supervise their uploading when the time comes.

I think tests protocols were not really good enough. 2 days for a migration who don't work yet and with no communication: nice...

Hi there...

[Sorry, I need to be off-topic in order to give an answer.]

thanks for joining GPUGRID. We would really love to welcome you, but the trouble is that GPUGRID mostly sends Nvidia/CUDA based tasks... whereas you have an AMD Radeon card 7750/7770. Even so you could help finding a cure for quite a few diseases, as your AMD would be a good match for Folding@Home. This one is not Boinc based but you can find their client for download easily on their Website.

See also
http://www.gpugrid.net/forum_thread.php?id=4348&nowrap=true#44146
If you want to continue the discussion about AMD, we possibly need to open another topic for that. I didnt find any good match in the Forum this time.

Not in progress but in download state.
I cancelled it after more than 30min. No new task since. But like the web page for the status server is really long to refresh and pages for show my gpugrid pref and boinc pref show errors; I can imagine that a lot of problems persists

Haven't gotten a project to run yet.

Upon adding the project, it shows all the files to download, then proceeds to download. While saying download active they stop, then go to a time to retry. Out of 20 or so files there were about 8 that had this status. Eventually all of the files have downloaded except for 1 that is at 80% and 38 minutes. It will go from download active to retry soon. When I click retry now, it downloads maybe 5% then hangs again.

You have an AMD card, this card is not supported under this project yet, in the mean time you can help other biological projects such as Folding@home and Malariacontrol.net. If you want to help the astrophysics community you can help SETI@home or Einstein@home.

What graphics board do you have available for such tasks? GPUGRID now refuses to download for anything except rather recent Nvidia-based graphics boards, and not the slowest of those.

Have you told BOINC to enable downloaded GPU workunits? If so, CUDA type, OpenCL type, or both?

Malariacontrol.net appear to have gone inactive - it's been at least days since I could reach their site.

Finally was able to get the downloads done. The work was done just fine and the upload went very quickly. I'm again waiting for the download again. I have 6 files all partially downloaded and waiting to continue as before.

I just did a retry and it immediately started downloading at 350kBps got 1 more MB then hung again. I have no internet issues and have restarted my router. Nothing on my end helps.

Still not enough tasks available, our machines are starving although the new server should have enough capacity to feed. Start-up difficulties are understandable but maybe the admin can improve that situation as the day progresses. It would be great for us volunteers to have some work to do over the weekend already. Thanks!

I had 4 downloads stalled this morning, but no files remaining to be transferred as per the transfers tab. Aborted these WUs and reset the project.
Now 2 long-runs are incoming, but download of libcufft.so.8.0 is hanging again and again, transient HTTP error :-(

I have a 100down/10up Mbit FTTH link, downloading updates, OS images, etc at 5-10MB/s, no problem...

For the last 10 minutes libcufft downloads at just 30kbyte/s, feels quite 2002ish ;-)

The new server have some really big networking issue or wait I/O. May be both and with applicatons issue too.

I'll second that question.

I'm not convinced that speed is the problem - or that GPUGrid's network speed is the problem.

I would observe that there is at least one, possibly two distinct, problem(s).

Maybe Spain's intranet has poor interconnectors with some other countries or some other ISPs? Some people clearly do experience slow connections, but I don't see that here in the UK - certainly not in the form of extended, steady, continuous trickles of data at low speed.

Instead, I see bursts of data: fast transmission, but with pauses. I mentioned a large file upload at ~850 KByte/sec last night: that's exceptionally good (almost the maximum rate my fibre ISP connection allows), but I usually get about half that rate, which is still pretty good.

I do observe the stalled downloads that we've discussed at length in other threads - and if not retried quickly enough, they can report as a start-to-finish average of rubbish. But the data flow, while it's flowing, is at a good instantaneous rate (most files are too small to register a meaningful average - it's been a long time since I needed to download one of the big cufft DLLs).

I was wondering if the new server would reveal that the download stalls had been a quirk of the old server: it hasn't, I've had the same stalled downloads today. So we need to look a little bit further out into the University or national infrastructure. The hunt restarts here.

My uploads have been steady and good here in the US. It's the downloads I'm having trouble with. As you said, the speed is good so long as it continues, but it doesn't. I have about 30 files to download with 8 partials waiting to start again. I had some yesterday about 8MB that took a few hours to download in about 25 small pieces when I kept clicking Retry Now. At times it was getting 300-400 KBps but only for a couple of seconds when it stalls.

Maybe someone can get on a speed test website and choose a server here in the US to see how uploads and downloads perform. I've used Speedtest.net that works well here. You're able to move the green box to see servers world wide. I'm just curious if it will work from there connected to servers here.

According to the website the server is in Barcelona. I got on Speedtest.net and chose a server there. My speeds were: download 12.86Mbps and upload 0.85MBps. Both went without hesitation or interruption. Ping was 198ms.

Any ideas? My graphics cards are just sitting here doing nothing for a couple of hours waiting for downloads that are pending....

I don't think that you can generalize. But just for fun I have tried the same from here (Austria) to Spain. 36,4MBit Download and 7,3MBit upload, 72ms Ping. So that is pretty different from the below and both results not very meaningful I assume. As if you want to "check" the bandwidth from Ireland to the Texas, whatever supposed to mean.

I think that the local Admin at the institute is the only one who can get the real numbers.

Just some further observations from today...

After setting <http_transfer_timeout>60</http_transfer_timeout>, I managed to download the libcufft, hitting retry every few minutes...
Since BOINC was showing an active transfer, but no increasing % or size of the file, I ran du -skx against it on disk every second:


Fr 2. Dez 10:25:11 CET 2016 108852 libcufft.so.8.0
Fr 2. Dez 10:25:12 CET 2016 109908 libcufft.so.8.0

Fr 2. Dez 10:25:17 CET 2016 130296 libcufft.so.8.0

Fr 2. Dez 10:25:20 CET 2016 130296 libcufft.so.8.0


Within 5 seconds the size grew from 108852 to 130296kB, then the download was hanging again. So sometimes the performance is there, but not stable...

Upload so far was always ok.

It is not an ISP problem: no problem before the "update".
I can imagine they use virtualization but with not the knowledge. Network virtualization can be really tricky I have to admit (am Admin Sys).

I proposed help but no reply. We have no communication from them in fact. Just "Toni" for https, Toni who is project administrator/dev/scientist. You make cofee too ?? (joke, no offense) Now it is the week-end so I expect nothing until monday...

I can not receive any work tasks, since last Tuesday

Nobody, a server update (1 day) and after problems (2 days).. They don't want to step back, so, waiting they (or her/he) solve them.

At Toni's request (PM), I've been trying test downloads of the big cufft64_80.dll file. Hard to be scientific about it, because the whole site went down in the middle, but I reckon I got roughly 10 MByte per attempt before it stalled, at download speeds of up to ~5,000 Mbits/sec. That's both using BOINC as the download tool, and by direct links in a browser. Our guess is that we are experiencing throttling outside the server - whether by the University or by something even downstream of that still needs to be investigated.

Edit - at least the clock on the new server looks more accurate than the old one! :P

How is this done best? I guess it is no good idea to manually edit the client_state_prev.XML .... what do you suggest, remove and join the project again in the Boinc project list?

I've tried to download the cufft64_80.dll file manually with Google Chrome, but it's stalled at 61.9MB (it's 139MB in total).
To make it easier to test, here's the direct link to the file:
https://www.ps3grid.net/download/cufft64_80.dll
EDIT: I've aborted the download, as suspending and resuming it didn't help. It's downloaded successfully without interrupt for the second attempt.

What about using a torrent program like BitComet or a download accelerator that can split the file into smaller pieces and reconstitute it outside of a browser constraint? Or even, is there the anonymous or passworded FTP option open for this location?

These do not matter, as the BOINC manager can use only HTTP (and HTTPS).

Tracert/trace route could possibly help to identify the bottleneck in Transmission. The above is the (my) way from Austria to the GPUGRID server www.ps3grid.net ... alias 84.89.134.145

Quite a long way to go, the Austrian "aorta" over Germany/Frankfurt, Denmark, UK ... basically a tour of entire Europe before I get to Barcelona.

I'm glad that the new server is running (congrats) but DL stalling has hit a new low. It's abysmal. Worse than its ever been. :-(

Is there any support from BOINC available to those with server issues?

good morning, everybody.

What I am a little surprised about is that there are barely any WUs ready for download, for several days now.

So I am wondering what sense a new server makes if then no work available.

WOW! Give the guys a chance. I'm sure they'll release more work when they have the server running properley. You want the work and they want you to do the work.

I also tried to download this dll with Chrome but always stop at about 5-7%.
I used "download manager" for Chrome and it easily downloaded this file with many stops but in 3-4 minutes.

Finally a positive report. However, there is no reason to use the ps3grid host name, it's obsolete. Whoever wants, please try both http and https.

Can anybody confirm (e.g. with netstat or similar tool) whether or not the boinc client is going through SSL?

Well, whenever there are a few tasks available, they are gone within seconds. So, it seems that the server is basically working for downloads and uploads (this impression is reinforced by the fact that whenever I am lucky to get a WU, it's being downloaded within seconds, and the uploads also works with same speed as before).

Besides, I guess that the IT technicians who take care of the few remaining server problems are different to those project scientists who prepare the WUs.

Hence, I don't think that the lack of WUs has much to do with the new server (and it's few minor problems here and there).

WUs are created dynamically on the basis of the ones returned. We are not creating more yet because we are still testing.

I don't normally use netstat, so don't know if this does you any good. But I just attached to GPUGrid on a Win7 64-bit machine. There were not any tasks available, but this is what netstat shows:
TCP 192.168.0.107:50422 104.45.129.178:https TIME_WAIT

I found it interesting that the positive report came from Trotador: his account page self-declares his country to be Spain. That might lend some weight to my suspicion that other people's delays are related to international peering problems.

On my computers, I see that two alternative scheduler addresses are listed:

<scheduler_url>http://www.ps3grid.net/PS3GRID_cgi/cgi</scheduler_url>
<scheduler_url>https://www.gpugrid.net/PS3GRID_cgi/cgi</scheduler_url>

A scheduler contact (project update) suggests that SSL is at least attempted:

03/12/2016 15:21:58 | GPUGRID | [http] [ID#1] Info: SSL connection using TLSv1.2 / ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256
03/12/2016 15:21:58 | GPUGRID | [http] [ID#1] Info: ALPN, server did not agree to a protocol
03/12/2016 15:21:58 | GPUGRID | [http] [ID#1] Info: Server certificate:
03/12/2016 15:21:58 | GPUGRID | [http] [ID#1] Info: subject: CN=www.ps3grid.net
03/12/2016 15:21:58 | GPUGRID | [http] [ID#1] Info: SSL certificate verify ok.

but I'm not enough of a security expert to confirm that all SSL requirements are met.

What is clear, however, is that none of the GPUGrid files have a <download_url>https: prefix, so I sincerely doubt that SSL would be used for file downloads. It might be worth a try (depending over what distance your personal tests have been run?) - BOINC can certainly handle it if specified.

I have some ideas on how we might overcome the cufft64_80.dll download problem (which wouldn't apply to the individual task files), but I'll save them until later in the diagnostic process.

On attaching to GPUGrid for the first time on a new reinstall of Win7 64-bit, it took 2 hours 10 minutes to get two shorts, after they became available. And the stalls are of a different type than before. They usually can't be manually restarted; they have to do their thing automatically after timing out, usually more than once. I am in the eastern U.S. and have a 20 Mbps/2 Mbps cable modem connection that normally does fine. But now that all the needed files are downloaded, maybe things will go more smoothly. I will not try my Linux machines for a while.

OK, while we are doing tracert, from eastern Pennsylvania USA:

It looks like a pretty direct route to me, and I don't see any problems.
I think the problem is more subtle than mere routing or speed. The network experts will need to find it.

I don't really understand... You're downloading projects through a website and not through BOINC and able to do the project?

I just used the general URL shown in Boinc Manager, but could try anything else if you think it will make a differnce.

!X means "communication administratively prohibited" and !Z "communication with destination host administratively prohibited" As far as I remember, you get !X on ipv4 and !Z on ipv6 and it should be documented in the man (8) pages.

Since Linux uses UDP for trace-routes, this can originate from a --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited rule at the destination. Some Linux distros have this as a default configuration. To fix this you need to reply with --reject-with icmp-port-unreachable on UDP ports 33434 through 33534.

I don't really understand... You're downloading projects through a website and not through BOINC and able to do the project?


I believe I've read that BOINC uses the same download method normally used for websites, on the same port, but then does something rather different with the files it downloads.

What is clear, however, is that none of the GPUGrid files have a <download_url>https: prefix, so I sincerely doubt that SSL would be used for file downloads. It might be worth a try (depending over what distance your personal tests have been run?) - BOINC can certainly handle it if specified.

That is to allow download files to be cached by proxies and lift some weight from the server. HTTP proxies can't cache httpS requests, by design. And downloading this files by HTTP is equally secure, because they are checked against checksum from scheduler reply. I hope this does not change.

what your event log shows is quite normal these days.
There are simply no new tasks available.
From an information I read here in the Forum, the GPUGRID people are waiting until the server migration problems are solved, before new tasks are being made available.

The few tasks which can be downloaded once in a while are the ones which are created "dynamically" by returned WUs etc.

5 days with no response on the "Error reported by file upload server: can't open file" issues.

Is there a possible fix, or should we just Abort the Transfers?

I think I've encountered the "[error] Error reported by file upload server: can't open file" message before on other BOINC projects, and found it a difficult one to decipher.

IIRC, it's basically in two parts:

"Error reported by file upload server" - it's the upload component of the BOINC server suite that's telling you there's a problem.

"[error] can't open file" - but the problem is that *your computer* can't open the file, so there's nothing that can be uploaded.

In the cases I remember looking at, the named file couldn't be found on the user's computer (it would be in the project directory, if present).

That can be a project problem - maybe the job template says that the named file is essential, but the application doesn't create it - or it can be a local problem (file has been deleted in a power or hardware failure, or by an over-enthusiastic anti-malware or security program).

Worth checking the named file on your local machine if it ever happens again.

Tasks won't download, they only download 2% every time BOINC is restarted. Then when they finish they don't start the task it still says downloading. I just started computing on that computer last night on WGC, which works fine. My laptop won't get new tasks but is currently computing one from a few days ago.

WUs are created dynamically on the basis of the ones returned. We are not creating more yet because we are still testing.

It is good that you are doing testing, but if we go too long testing and not creating new WUs, than this project will come to a screeching halt, with no more WUs.


And one more thing, those people with download problems, try doing this:

Open Boinc Manager, make sure under View it is set to Advanced View, if it isn't set to it already.

At the top, click Activity, then click Suspend network activity, wait a few seconds and click Network activity always.

That will get the download to continue, if it stalls again, repeat this procedure until the files finish downloading.

(I saw this in one of the other threads, and I can't remember which one.)

And another thing, my windows xp computer, which has a 100 Mb/s network connection, has a higher tendency of stalled downloads than my windows 10 computer, which has a 1 Gb/s network connection. I hope this helps in solving this problem.

Testing is before an upgrade not after...
It is really nice you make your distributed project. But now, you seems to be, "not professional". One week after it isn't working.
It's seems like in France, research don't have money or underestimate the need for a team of info tech... Because in the real world, like an ISP, commercial compagny or any private compagny, 1 week offline is just not possible !

But, I least, you made one. I am french and I don't see a lot of french institute here ! (public or private).
Yet, a long way to make....
So, good luck ! My CUDA's will be here when you will.

All of your services are on the same host (status page): don't use VM or Docker ?

I think that it is server problem. Server can't open file to write the upload to (or log file). How can the serve know that client can't open file? The same happened on MindModelling forum

How VM would help? Remember there is overhead for every VM. And linux is quite good at isolating programs if configured properly. And if the VM host crashes all VMs go down too.

What could help is to move the download and or upload service to another host and better network.

No, that results in a different and more explicit error message, like for example "[error] Error reported by file upload server: [1x81-GERARD_CXCL12_LIG10-4-5-RND5536_0_9] locked by file_upload_handler PID=17978" (from message 39407 and surrounding discussion). That one was certainly a problem on the server, but I think in the case of "can't open file", the server is simply echoing back a message received from the reporting client. But I'll check some more.

What could help is to move the download and or upload service to another host and better network.

That would certainly help with the huge CUDA runtime files, because they are created by NVidia and redistributed without alteration by the project. I actually downloaded the whole CUDA 8.0 development toolkit (1.2 GB) during testing over the weekend - it only took about five minutes - and confirmed that the cufft_80.dll it contains is identical to the one distributed here.

I think that BOINC should develop (perhaps should already have developed) a more efficient way of handling shared library files between projects, but that won't happen overnight. Instead, we could ask somebody else to host the files and allow GPUGrid to use a download url pointing to their servers: maybe another BOINC project with ample resources - Einstein comes to mind - or even NVidia themselves as a project sponsor could provide the download facility.

Of course, the CUDA 8.0 files only need to be downloaded once by each user - either on first joining the project, or on purchasing their first GTX 10xx GPU. Subsequent machines can be provided with the file by copying locally, and I'd advise backing these files up for re-use before making major changes like re-installing an operating system.

But that won't help us with the files required for an individual task: I think each one is distinct, and would need to be uploaded separately to a mirror server before then could be downloaded by the end user - that is likely to be just as problematic. We still need to solve the underlying problem for those files.

Hi, first time here on the forum.
Since 1st of December my GPU is number crunching as always, unlike what I read in this thread. But, I don't get any points anymore... Is this a related issue to the server update?

How VM would help? Remember there is overhead for every VM. And linux is quite good at isolating programs if configured properly. And if the VM host crashes all VMs go down too.

What could help is to move the download and or upload service to another host and better network.

Because is most easier for modify a service without impact others, have different versions of a prog/API/lib and scalable.
We don't talk about a lambda user use but for professional use. It is quite different ! 15 years as an Admin Sys, I know a few... And of course, if you just have one host and it crash..., but it is already the case. For eleminate a SPOF (Single Point of failure) you need money and brains...

So does it mean that my GPU might be too slow?

You card, a GTX 650 is not the fastest in the world these days, but should be able to complete a work unit in a few days I would guess. Is the percentage complete increasing? If so, I would just let it run.

But I notice you have VirtualBox projects also. They have sometimes caused problems for me, so if your work unit is stuck (not increasing), I would reboot and see what happens. It might un-stick it, or it might error out.

EDIT: Also, be sure to reserve a CPU core for the GTX 650, or it will be slow for sure. You can do that by setting the BOINC Manager preferences to "use at most 90%" of the CPUs" for example, or whatever it takes. And some VirtualBox projects (the multi-core ones) like to grab all the CPU cores that they can, so that may be why the GTX 650 is running slowly.

That would certainly help with the huge CUDA runtime files, because they are created by NVidia and redistributed without alteration by the project. I actually downloaded the whole CUDA 8.0 development toolkit (1.2 GB) during testing over the weekend - it only took about five minutes - and confirmed that the cufft_80.dll it contains is identical to the one distributed here.

The gridrepublic project is already providing somewhat similar services for the Fight Neglected Diseases project; you might want to contact them.

https://compute.gridrepublic.org

I think that BOINC should develop (perhaps should already have developed) a more efficient way of handling shared library files between projects, but that won't happen overnight. Instead, we could ask somebody else to host the files and allow GPUGrid to use a download URL pointing to their servers: maybe another BOINC project with ample resources - Einstein comes to mind - or even NVidia themselves as a project sponsor could provide the download facility.

In other words, modify BOINC to allow specifying a URL to download a file from, as well as the name of the file to download, on the list of files to download. What I've seen so far indicates that this is currently possible only by specifying one alternate URL to download ALL of the files from and upload ALL of the files to.

I assume that you're aware of the boinc_dev mailing list as the place to request changes to BOINC. If not, see:

http://lists.ssl.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/boinc_dev

That would require developing a way to avoid file name conflicts between shared files used by different projects. One way to do that would be to extend the system currently used for sharing files used for sharing files between multiple tasks from the same BOINC project to allow specifying which project to look for the file under, then create a new type of BOINC project that does no more than download large files needed by some other BOINC project.

The forwarding services already available, such as gridrepublic and World Community Grid, only need to download one copy of the files specific to each workunit, regardless of how many wingmates tasks for that workunit will be sent to. So such forwarding already provides some server relief, just not as much as you want.

World Community Grid, however, requires a code review for all applications they forward; I'm not sure if you'll consider that fast enough to be worthwhile.

I'm getting tasks on my laptop, my desktop won't get them though. It might have t do with its wifi signal because WGC does the same thing. I'll try using my laptop as an access point.

Everything fine for me download/upload and running WU.

But don't always get work to do, I'm internet connected 50% of the time via cell phone hotspot. So when a reconnect, sometime, no more WU, hope more WU to come available.

Copy&Paste from other post:

I think there is value looking into the "inside Spain vs outside Spain" angle. Many of these traceroutes have an increase in ping time starting when the connection gets from some ISP or backbone to the Spanish ISP or backbone. Also the user who reports no issues at all is the one inside Spain. I would be interested in seeing if the internal network computers running alpha, beta, regular, or testing units are seeing any issues like we are seeing. I would also be interested in seeing if any of the students or members of staff (etc) have PCs at home in Spain that could test the "inside Spain" theory for us outside of the local network. And perhaps it is the ISP within Spain that is just not good at the handoff to other ISPs through the backbones or some filtering method being used on the Spanish ISP networks for packet capture and analyzation. I would think that would more prevalent in places like Turkey, China, and Pakistan where it is a known issue that the government is tracking all the traffic in and out of the country to censor it, but maybe Spain has something in place that does something for some reason having this effect on our connections to the project???

I also do see different sounding reports from users within the same country, but on different ISPs or areas of that country. Some Comcast users in remote areas seeing increased issues than Comcast users in populated ares, but still reporting the issues are only with this project. I would wonder if some of those with the worst download and upload issues are also getting a greater number of failed tasks due to files that had dropped packets and seemed complete, but had some issue that caused the failures.

I will try the traceroute and downloading that file in both Firefox and BitCommet to see if there is any difference, failures, or interruptive delays.

One added thing I will add as an observation though is the increased reports of tasks that are listed for machines that do not have those tasks. I have one that has a delivery date of today on it to a computer that does not have that task on it. http://www.gpugrid.net/workunit.php?wuid=12186647 I wonder if this and the connection issue is also related, as a "tried to send" issue that one side (server) thinks it was sent and received while the other side (client) knows it got no such WU?

I'd also say that apparently minor variations in local networking seem to be significant - possibly the route to Spain is peculiarly sensitive to timing errors in the networking protocols?

I have a combined ADSL modem/router downloading at 40 Mbit/sec and uploading at 10 Mbit/sec (the ADSL link only runs as far as the nearest street cabinet, where it's connected to an optical fibre feed). The router is connected to a 16-port gigabit switch.

From there, my four computers running GPUGrid are connected as follows:

A) 43362 and 43404 are close to the switch and connected to the switch by a gigabit patch cable.

B) 45218 is in another room, connected via trunk Cat5e cable and a secondary 100 Mbit switch and patch cable. The secondary switch is also a wireless access point for:

C) 388426 connected to the access point by 802.11'n' WiFi.

The two computers at location 'A' can both download the 140MB cufft64_80.dll in about 30 seconds, either by http or by https, consistently - I tried over the weekend, and I tried again just now.

The computer at location 'B' won't download cufft64_80.dll at all today, although it's my 'daily driver', and all other internet tabs in my browser (at least a dozen) are refreshing normally as I type. Other days, it's at least started the download, but normally stalls after less than 20 MB.

The computer at location 'C' is a new testbed, which I can use either wired or wireless, running Windows 7 or Windows 10. 'wired' means another run of Cat5e back to the gigabit switch, and no secondary switch. Under optimal conditions (wired, Win 7) it can also download the fft file in 30 seconds using my normal Chrome browser, but that fails completely in Windows 10. I can, however, download the file using the wired connection and Microsoft Edge.

The two computers at 'A' rarely stall when downloading a task datafile, but the two at 'B' and 'C' usually stall on at least one file, but complete the download at the second or third attempt.

So, big variations even within my house in northern England, before I even consider routes to Spain.

As expected, the time in ms jumps significantly on the handoff from the US side of the Level3 backbone to the Spanish side of it. Then all the traffic within Spain is just as high a difference while the USA based connections are almost single digit and the Spanish based and handoff ones are triple digit ms times.

The cufft64_80.dll file stops at 14,557 packets 20,167,320 bytes received over https on a Firefox browser.

Over http on the Firefox browser it stops at around the same place at 14,480 packets 19,993,440 bytes.

On Bitcommet (a torrent and http downloader) it took 7 min 11 sec to complete across 20 connections to the file. There were errors in the logs. Some of the connections ended in
2016-12-08 17:25:20 Error occurred: Server disconnected unexpectedly (error code: 10060)

Most of the logs looked like this though. (This is a copy of "Connection 1" as listed in the below connections picture.)

So, big variations even within my house in northern England, before I even consider routes to Spain.

Truly remarkable. I have been fighting a long battle to get my PC to record videos from my TV cable that are converted by HDHomeRun into a standard 100 Mbps Ethernet format. To eliminate the various glitches, I had to turn off flow control. Perhaps that is counter-intuitive, but the various protocols are known to fight against each other; I am not the first to discover that. Whether than has anything to do with Spain I don't know, but it might account for local variations. There are other LAN settings (Interrupt Moderation, Energy Efficient Ethernet, etc.) that are known sources of trouble too, not to mention WiFi signal problems of course.

I'm getting tasks on my laptop, my desktop won't get them though. It might have t do with its wifi signal because WGC does the same thing. I'll try using my laptop as an access point.

If you use BOINC Manager (Advanced View) on your desktop, click on Activity, then make sure you do not have it set to Suspend network activity or Suspend GPU or Suspend. Also click on Projects, then GPUGRID, and make sure you do not have it set to No new tasks (listed in the Status column).

If you use Simple View, click on View, then Advanced View, to switch views. To switch it back, click on View, then Simple View.

Also click on Projects, then on one of the BOINC projects listed, then Home page. You should then see a web page for that project.

By the way, what GPU (or graphics card) does that desktop use? GPUGRID can use only some of the graphics card models.

As expected, the time in ms jumps significantly on the handoff from the US side of the Level3 backbone to the Spanish side of it. Then all the traffic within Spain is just as high a difference while the USA based connections are almost single digit and the Spanish based and handoff ones are triple digit ms times.
There's a simple explanation for the triple digit (in miliseconds) round-trip times for US residents: the signal travels at the speed of light (no matter if it's on copper or glass fibre), and Philadelphia is 6289km (3908mi) away from Barcelona, it takes ~21ms for the signal to travel that far, so ~42ms adds to the round-trip times because the speed of light is so low :). US residents in the west coast should add ~26ms latency.

Hi,

We have now been issued some Short Run WU's, however some of these are having issues.

Normally on our GTX 970s a long run would take around 9/10 hours, where as a short run would take around an hour.

Some of the short run WU are processing fine, whereas some are having issues. We have aborted one, and one is suspended. The later is a short run WU which has taken an hour to do less than 5% on a GTX 970 - which would mean its going to take roughly 20 hours to complete!!

The GPUs are currently crunching Collatz at normal speed and hence are working correctly.

Could you take a look into what is going on?

Thanks.

With what graphics card? GPUGRID insists on fast, fairly recent graphics cards with an Nvidia GPU, and has very few CPU-only workunits.

I've also been on WCG since 2008.

Many others are also complaining about getting little or no GPUGRID work now.

There has been a lack of tasks recently but your GTX 970's are fine; good GPU's and recent driver versions.
Ensure you didn't install Boinc as a service - otherwise you won't get any tasks. The fix, if needed is simply to reinstall and deselect install as a service. Also, don't use remote desktop - uses default GPU drivers.
You may want to check your Boinc settings and use some GPU fan/temp/clock controlling software (MSI Afterburner or similar).
Good luck,

"New version of ACEMD" is listed on the server status page, this queue has 95 unsent workunits, but I can't get from these. What are the system requirements for these workunits?

Maybe we should have a copy of Toni's 14 December update here too.

1. Server upgrade went as planned and is completed. There are still graphical glitches on the web pages, which we hope to fix with time. Addressing these has to be balanced with scientific tasks and available hands, namely point 3 below.

2. We investigated connectivity issues with your help, and reported them with data to the network admins. There is nothing we can do on the server.

3. Lack of workunits. Of course we would like to increase the amount and diversity of experiments done. This was the main reason behind the server upgrade. Properly preparing experiments however requires time and deep consideration. We are on it. I, for one, would like to prepare further experiments, but it's not something that can be done (properly) from one day to the other.

As always, we are REALLY thankful for your support (and patience).

I feel for you. Have installed W10 for a few people and they all dislike it intensely compared to w7. One day something will work, the next day it won't. Now ms has messed with windows 7 update so that on most new installs we have to jump though hoops to get it running again. Just another dirty trick to force users onto w10 spyware I'm afraid. :-(

Tell me about it. But I have developed may own anti-MS strategy, and can get it to work (you have to do certain updates and not others). I will hold on to Win7 until they pry it out of my cold dead hands. And I don't care about MS stopping their security updates someday. That will only make it more reliable insofar as I can see.

I actually think some of my issues started when I installed the "Anniversary Edition Update", but since this new "Cumulative Rollup" to that edition, the PC has been up and down and even not reading one of the cards on the monitoring services (MSI Afterburner, NVIDIA Inspector, Open Hardware Monitor) as being there, even though GPUGRID continues to use the card at full capacity. Sometimes the card or 2 cards or all 3 drop off the Device Manager as not even installed, but continue to work.

I know this time it is not heat as the windows are open and it is 20 some degrees Fahrenheit in that basement. The cards are running at least 20 degrees lower than in the air conditioned summer. The system froze twice last night/this morning and started the WUs from zero. Today the system froze up and dropped all the WUs and then dropped GPUGRID right out of BOINC. I had to add it back in as a project, which wiped the WUs completely. Now upon adding the project back, logogpugrid.png, project1.png, project2.png, and project3.png are simply not downloading at all and it won't get any new WUs until the project's basic files are finished. They retry, back off (for longer each time, now up to over an hour to retry each), and I have never seen this specific issue. Will search the forums for it. I do know that http://www.gpugrid.net/download/filenameofthesePNGfiles does not exist to manually download. Maybe they don't exist at all and that is the problem??? Will check the log to see what url it is trying to get them from. Anyway, the Windows updates as of late for W10 are horrible.

EDIT: It is looking for them at http://www.gpugrid.net/filenameofthesePNGfiles and I get a 404 when trying to get them over a browser connection.

Reinstall Afterburner and NV Inspector, and see if they work.

Could be a loose GPU or cable (hard drive), Bios playing up... I would begin by doing a cold start (shut down, power of & disconnect the PSU for 1min or so, [check connections are tight] cable up and restart).

I had to add it back in as a project, which wiped the WUs completely. Now upon adding the project back, logogpugrid.png, project1.png, project2.png, and project3.png are simply not downloading at all and it won't get any new WUs until the project's basic files are finished. They retry, back off (for longer each time, now up to over an hour to retry each), and I have never seen this specific issue. Will search the forums for it. I do know that http://www.gpugrid.net/download/filenameofthesePNGfiles does not exist to manually download. Maybe they don't exist at all and that is the problem??? Will check the log to see what url it is trying to get them from. Anyway, the Windows updates as of late for W10 are horrible.

EDIT: It is looking for them at http://www.gpugrid.net/filenameofthesePNGfiles and I get a 404 when trying to get them over a browser connection.

In my project directory (www.gpugrid.net) they are called:
logogpugrid.png
project_1.png
project_2.png
project_3.png
These are also not browsable at http://www.gpugrid.net/project_3.png etc.

<It's a good idea to backup your project directory before resetting any project, but especially this project ATM>

Now ms has messed with windows 7 update so that on most new installs we have to jump though hoops to get it running again. Just another dirty trick to force users onto w10 spyware I'm afraid. :-(

Tell me about it. But I have developed may own anti-MS strategy, and can get it to work (you have to do certain updates and not others).

Care to share your strategy? Maybe a new thread so we don't clog this one up too much?

OK, glad to do so. I stuck it in the Number crunching section for lack of a better place, but the moderator may choose to move it.
You may wish to supplement it with you own war stories, as permitted.

Reinstall Afterburner and NV Inspector, and see if they work.

Not an issue. Its the card in the middle causing issues. I need to rotate them.

Could be a loose GPU or cable (hard drive), Bios playing up... I would begin by doing a cold start (shut down, power of & disconnect the PSU for 1min or so, [check connections are tight] cable up and restart).

Will try this with the rotate obviously.

<It's a good idea to backup your project directory before resetting any project, but especially this project ATM>

After I posted this, they came through after about 30 minutes or less all together. I will remember this tip to back it all up though when re-adding a project if/when something goes wrong. Thanks.

As far as updates go though, I have 6 systems dead now that are running BOINC that 3 died in the past few weeks since some of these odd updates from Windows across a few versions of Windows. 3 of the systems died on and off across the past year. I need to get the 3 back to the shop when I can get out of the house. 1 of the systems, I need to get it fixed by the people who made it and donated it. I also have to get them to fix a *nix issue on a storage server they also provided. Either way, 1 Win10, 1 Win8.1, 3 Win7, and 1 WinXP machines all dead currently. :-( I expect very shortly my rank as one of the top 3 in the Hosts column will go the way of my rank as top 5 in the User column did. I really need some strength one day to do any of this. It feels like I am so helpless to do any of it being fairly bed ridden now. I really need to beat all this stuff going on and get back to life again soon!!!

I was just watching the download speed on a couple of the new BNBS WUs. They both were hitting about 2Mbps - which for me in the US is very impressive IIRC. No errors, either.

Downloads are hanging anywhere from 0.00% to 92.71% of the download. I've aborted transfers that remain hung for an hour and keep cycling between "Download: active" (with nothing downloading), "Download: pending" (ditto), and the countdowns to when "Download: active" again. Very frustrating. Unproductive, too. My location: NH, USA.

The time Boinc (the download) Manager waits to retry downloading is random (not that this issue is fundamentally anything to do with BM). Rather than aborting the download, from Boinc Manager try suspending network activity, then enabling it (with a retry now [Transfers Tab], if necessary; might start automatically).

Fired up my PC for GPUgrid and everything is working like a charm. I have the SDOERR BNBS task. It appears to be going very slow right now, though, and I have 87% GPU usage with windows XP and a gtx 960.

I will report the end results when my computer is finished.

I just fired up my other PC with windows 7 and the download speeds are incredibly slow for me as well (4.40kb/s). It's been over an hour downloading.

I've tried suspending boinc and restarting the PC and it was at 44kb/s but went down back to 4.40 kb/s.

UPDATE:

Ok the project is now running for me.

Try what skgiven has mention as well as restarting the computer. This might help a bit.

I suspended the project, restarted, then left it on suspended till it finished downloading. Might work or might not. It worked for me, but yet again I was at around 98% downloaded.

I am not sure the multiple 13MB files were part of the older units like they are on these BNBS ones, but these new ones are actually taking longer than any others ever. I've had a few pauses and timeouts, but never like these. It gets like 300kb at the speed of 1000kbs, then stops again. I had to restart the network activity about 20 times to get them.

I also had a big problem with downloading file like this. I finally downloaded it with simple method: when i saw download stopped then I restarted Boinc Manager (close application and all tasks and start Boinc again). It reduced downloading time to about 30 mins, which is better than 1 or 2 days ;)

I've been having persistent problems getting work from the server, and then uploading completed work results. When the transfers do show up, they often show 0 to <10 kb/sec transmission speeds, and "retrying" usually has no effect. I have all settings for complete access to internet, CPU, and GPUs, so there are no app restrictions in place. I do not have any problems accessing any websites and other distributed computing projects do not have similar problems.

Also, I have 10 days of queued work specified, but more often than not, I have a GPU sitting idle for lack of work.

Any suggestions?

It's recommended for here that you keep a very low cache of queued work. 10days is asking for lots of trouble. Many CPU tasks will end up running in frantic mode when they approach their deadline and prevent GPU tasks running (as GPU tasks still use the CPU to some extent). Any MT tasks you might have could kill the show.

After a lengthy period of "no new tasks available" many times, the scientists seem to be more busy than ever before :-)

As can be seen from the Project Status Page, over 10.000 "unsent" tasks lately.
This is great, so we can start into the new year with crunching on full power :-)

Not that by the time they arrive we'll be out of work again...

New is all relative lol. And you're probably right but I certainly hope not!

Also see https://boincstats.com/en/forum/18/11403. Communication between the Account Manager BOINCstats and GPUGRID seems to have been broken by this upgrade.

What gives?

Since yesterday, I can download only one work-unit per computer (and that with difficulty!) which leaves most of my 22 GPUs unfed...

I'll give it a while, but if the situation continues I might better be employing my resources elsewhere (another project)!

This is nothing personal, there's a general error which affects every long workunit.
See this thread: http://www.gpugrid.net/forum_thread.php?id=4529

It is wise to set up backup projects (with 0 resource share set in your preferences at the project's homepage) for these unfortunate times.
Be patient. We can't save the world overnight anyway. :)

NEVER MIND!! Seems the issue between BOINCstats and GPUGRID is fixed now. I spoke prematurely... I will bump other threads where other problems were originally reported.
